So journal more!
I'm in Cortland, I was going to follow Manuel to Ithaca and wander around Cornell while I work but these 2 days I've decided to stay in his house. It's less distracting. Yesterday I started a new blog, a writing blog. And today I'm going to start another blog, a writing blog under a pseudonym. So 2 blogs.
Yesterday was a nice day to write. I stayed at his kitchen table and when I got bored I would walk around outside and go back in. Downtown Cortland is just 1 block away so there is food for me and a CVS.
I miss the baby, but not as badly as the trip to the Outer Banks a few months ago where the feeling of missing was so visceral.
While here I'm also looking up some DBT stuff: it's a form of cognitive behavior therapy, and it teaches you skills on emotional regulation and distress tolerance and mindfulness. That's definitely a whole blog post.
We had dinner with his parents. Time flies, I haven't seen his Dad since 2004 or so. Manuel bought them a condo and had them move from Ohio to Cortland where there are no asians but so he can take care of them. He is a good son.
Manuel and I are doing a Sense8 marathon. The last time I was here for his wedding I did a Heros marathon, mainly to watch Zachary Quinto.
